Mechanics and Semantics: Language as Paralysis
I) The House Machine as the Renewable Starting Point
rather eloquent for a criticism of language. i suppose you've mastered that machine? this is beautiful. although i don't know if i agree with the idea that language is what's really holding us down.
Here's a link to Williams' thoughts:
Language as a limitation was a concept I pulled from a book description your mom read to us in your kitchen. I really wish I knew more about it. I should ask her, I guess.
anais nin says words are destroyers. addie bundren says words go vertical and actions clutch along the ground until they are all seperate. I wish I knew the backstory for this poem. It is beautiful, especially about saddled to the bed machine.
i've never thought of you as an idiot. was that a reference to the poem or a general assumption? i guess i should call to ask.Post a Comment
